Guruji Seshan, Alexandra and Professor Shankara Shastry 1998
A rare and beautiful photo of Guruji and his lovely wife and companion of more than 50 years, Mrs. Seshan. Mrs. Seshan was always present at our classes, providing support and heartfelt hospitality to all, as she laughed and served us all snacks and tea. Although we would spend weeks and months in their presence while also touring the city and going to spiritual sites and temples, we always made a habit of stopping and saying goodbye to Guruji and Mrs. Seshan on our way to the airport as the last and most important activity we would do in India. Even if we had just seen them that morning, one more visit was always squeezed in for a quick goodbye, during which time they would warmly bless us and then bid us "Happy Journey!" Every moment with Guruji and Mrs. Seshan was precious and valuable. In this photo, they kindly came outside and saw us off, as we got into a taxi. Leaving India was always bittersweet.

ABOUT THE TEACHERS & LINEAGE
In India, lineage forms an important part of a student/practitioner's journey. The Vedic Healing Institute is proud to present its lineage of esteemed teachers many of whom, though no longer with us on the physical plane, remain ever present in our lives. We extend our gratitude, love and immense thanks to these teachers who have touched our lives and are dearly remembered and missed on the physical plane every day. None of these photos can adequately convey the immense energy, wisdom, and magic that emanated from these beings, but we hope that all who view our teachers are touched in some manner. It is said that just by gazing into the eyes of a true teacher one can derive immense blessings.
